How can I test the Accept button on the headset?
I press the Accept hardware key on the headset, but nothing happens.
I have jabra speaker 510 and jabra 930
Hi Mehmet,
When do you think you will have an update for the 410/510 devices?
What Jabra devices do you recommend that work OK now?
1. Yes, we tested, the LED light on the speaker Jabra 510 changes to green and blinking, then I press Accept key on the speaker, but nothing happens.
2. I do not get any commands in the 'translated' box.
I ran sample from Jabra SDK on a PC (OpenSUSE Leap 42.1),
with the current Jabra API :
I cannot find an API to catch headset button events.
I only get result: send control event from Qt UI to headset (ring, mute, ...).

I need APIs to catch events for these headsets (jabra 510, jabra 930) on opensuse leap 42.1:
1. Get call key when pressed
2. Get end call key when pressed
3. Get mute key when pressed
Actually, my customer now uses:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 SP4 32/64 Bit
SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 12 SP1 (x86_64) - 3.12.53-60.30-default
openSUSE Leap 42.1 64 Bit
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.7 (Santiago)
And they will use:
RedHat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 7.x (latest)
My big customer needs these distros:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.7 (Santiago)
openSUSE Leap 42.1 64 Bit
SUSE SLED 11 SP4 32/64 Bit
Hi Mehmet,
May is OK. I cannot ask customers to rebuild their kernels.
We will try your SDK.
openSUSE Leap 42.1 (64-bit version) is most important for me.
It is important if you can commit to Red Hat. Many big companies use Red Hat.
Less important, also try to commit to Debian.
Mostly 64 bit. 32 bit is not common in companies now.
Merhaba Mehmet,

In general, it looks really nice.
But there is 1 big problem. It requires that my customers rebuild their Linux kernel (Until these changes are committed by Jabra and accepted by the Linux kernel maintainers).
Do you know how long that process will take? (commit and accept)
Hello Mehmet,
Does it look like you will deliver end of March?
Hello Mehmet,
I have and tried
Jabra Pro 930
Jabra Speak 510

I will wait for your SDK/API. Please contact me when it is ready.
I need it for 1000 seats on SUSE.
Specifically openSUSE Leap 42.1 (64 bit)
SUSE is popular in Germany, so I suggest you test on SUSE.
Also Red Hat (a popular corporate distro). CentOS is same as Red Hat. You can get CentOS free.
I need several APIs for an office headset, on my Linux softphone for Lync/Skype for Business (you can see it at

We tested with several headsets, including Jabra, on Linux, but when I press these buttons, nothing happens (both Skype on Linux and evtest
The main problem is: My Linux softphone must handle accept and reject call from headphone hardware, but I cannot find any way to catch these signals from the headsets that I have.

My ideal would be a way to get signals for all manual controls (accept call, end call, volume up, volume down, mute, etc.) on a good quality wireless headset (DECT better, but can be Bluetooth).

I have a German customer who wants 1000 of these.
And I can also try to sell them to other customers, mostly Europe and USA.

I know you have the Jabra HID specification (GN-HID-USB.org_3.0.pdf).
I think that should be all I need, and I think this is not a difficult project, certainly much easier than our development of a Skype for Business Linux client. Maybe I just need some guidance and/or introduction to someone who can help.
